The episode title says it all and the episode itself doesn't disappoint. The highlight is the ongoing relationship between Londo and G'Kar but Sheridan's tirade when he finally has enough of the Alliance members runs a close second.

The title is great - sounds like a quote, but I couldn't find a source for it.

This episode feels very uncomfortable - I find myslf squirming, wishing there were a way to stop the inevitable. I also find myself hating Garibaldi for failing, and wishing that the others would finally recognize what's going on with him and stop him. He tells them they can rely on him, and they believe it - and hundreds die as a result.

We've been seeing the same Centauri minister as a spokesperson without really finding anything out about him. I assume he is controlled by a Watcher, but what function does he have that he can override all others, including his supposed superiors such as the Prime Minister, even the Regent?

Who wouldn't sympathize with Sheridan when he explodes into the fighting at the Council meeting?! Great tension release...

Londo may be the upcoming Emperor, but that doesn't stop him from joining G'Kar in prison when he insists that they stay together. So just what is the worth of being designated Emperor?!

Poor little thread! :p

I agree with Estelyn, that this episode is uncomfortable to watch. I am uncomfortable with drunk Garibaldi in other episodes, especially when things start going horribly wrong all around him. This one is the worst. How is he ever going to deal with that guilt? I also agree with the author on the Lurker's Guide page for this episode: Why is Garibaldi the only contact?

It's interesting that Londo talks to Vir as though he's quite sure the Centauri Republic is NOT behind the attacks, and that that will all become clear soon enough. But, as G'Kar says in this episode, we all saw the weird stuff going on at the Royal Court. He must suspect that it is indeed his own government behind all of this. Is he just trying to spare Vir?

EDIT: I forgot to say, I really like that scene of Londo and G'Kar looking up at the sky, watching the warships overhead. It seems a deliberate reference to that scene with the Shadow ships from Londo's dream in "The Coming of Shadows", and then in Londo's reality in "The Hour of the Wolf", only now G'Kar is there with him!
